Mary Jones to McArdle, February 1893

1818 Prairie Aven


Houston Feb. 25./93

Professor McArdle

Dear Sir

            I have written to one


of our Harris Cos. Representatives in behalf of


San Jacinto battle picture[,] And as I have


great doubt whether it will do more


harm than good will inclose [sic] it to


you & ask you to make any chan-


ges you may deem proper or —


consign it to the waste basket, or


fire. I find that I am too nervous to


write, and beside[s] my eyes are not


strong enough to bear the glare of white


Paper — with best wishes for


success

I am truly your


friend


Mary Jones

Now I beg of you to do with my


letter just as you may think


proper and oblige me
